After being assured we were to have the best Summer on record for many years, it turns out we are having the worst. Eight weeks of Summer holidays in a wet country with four children is not easy. To top it off, all ‘last minute bargain holidays’ have gone and hubby has next week off! It’s not fair.
I suppose we could have a week in Cork, we have free accommodation there but not guaranteed good weather. Change is a good as a rest.
I have a Residents Meeting this evening and need to organise for the gardai to give a chat about the Neighbourhood Watch Scheme. There’s very little crime in our town, the worst offence I’ve seen is littering! But it’s good for us to know how to prevent crime and to work together to ensure a safe environment for our children.
We’ll also be organising a Summer family day for the last Saturday in August. This is the first party on the estate. Hubs is bringing a large barbeque from work to feed a possible 60/70 people. A bouncy castle will be booked and one of the parents is organising party games for the children. If you’ve ever had a party on your street, please give me a few pointers. I’d appreciate a few more ideas!
